Sad times.

In Tuesday’s opener, the sim Cubs lost to the sim Padres by a score of 4-2 as the simPadres took the first game of the series at beautiful simWrigley Field. Rowan Wick was the losing pitcher and Dan Winkler gave up his first earned run of the season. Jose Quintana pitched well enough to win but the bats were lacking. Dinelson Lamet got the win and Kirby Yates shut the simCubs down in the ninth for the save. The game was not without any highlights but the simPadres have taken possession of the ground meat and the breadcrumbs and threaten to make meatloaf today. Jon Lester will try to prevent this from happenng. He is opposed by Joey Lucchesi, who is so unknown that I keep thinking of him as Larry, who apparently owns a body shop in Algonquin, but I had him confused with Larry LaLonde of Primus. Ah well. These things happen.

Al will have more information about that game in the game post at 2:30 pm CT, Tuesday, for our 3 p.m. start. I’ll drop the specific URL to the contest in the game thread, but you can lurk at the BCB Media Center and catch it there as well. All past games and highlights reels are available there too, if you want the full #simCubs experience.
